A huge lava river is coming from Italy’s Mount Etna after it burst into life in February. Volcanologists have been using new technologies such as drones and GPS to study the latest activity following a series of recent eruptions.
The volcano erupted on February 28 with repeated explosions that sent lava flying into the air. A few weeks later on March 16, 10 people were injured when magma hit snow causing an eruption that sent stones and rocks flying.
Etna, at 10,926 feet, is the highest volcano in mainland Europe and can burst into action several times a year.
